comment Does heroic trigger when the creature is in a graveyard?
@Jonathan Hobbs, Flashback's allows casting from the graveyard (a 101.1 situation), but what allows Flashback itself to operate in the graveyard? It's not actually covered by any of the 112.6 exceptions! Oddly, it's only allowed by the definition of Flashback. ("It represents two static abilities: one that functions while the card is in a player’s graveyard and another that functions while the card is on the stack.") "You may cast this from your graveyard" wouldn't actually work on a card.

comment Does heroic trigger when the creature is in a graveyard?
The logic approached by those saying 101.1 is applicable when it isn't is invariably "X doesn't work in this situation by the rules, X should work in this situation, therefore X must override the rules, therefore X works in this situation", but the premise that X should work in this situation is entirely invented. A card only overrides the rules when it says something that directly contradicts a rule. (e.g. "You cannot lose.") There's nothing of the kind here.

@Rainbolt, Jonathan Hobbs's assessment of why 101.1 doesn't apply is completely correct.

Heroic does absolutely nothing. It has no rule meaning whatsoever.

@murgatroid99, Earlier, you said I wanted too long, but now you're saying I didn't wait long enough for you to make changes. Either way, I have no problem with you improving your answer.

@murgatroid99, I'm not interested in a philosophical on what's necessary and what's not. I felt there was far more to say that what you said, and far more than appropriate for a comment or to add to your answer.

There's nothing to discuss.

There are only six directions in which you can travel. Any line you create will necessarily be perpendicular to an edge.

No. If you continue the arrow in a straight line, you won't end up in E. (B and E aren't on opposite sides of C.)
